Staying at a Disney World deluxe resort usually comes with beautiful theming, nice rooms, and perks like Extended Evening Hours. One might argue, though, that one of the most beautiful deluxe resorts in Disney World is Disney’s BoardWalk Inn.
This deluxe resort is a popular choice for guests wanting easy access to EPCOT or Hollywood Studios, which are both just a walk or boat ride away, or because of the fun boardwalk shops, restaurants, and nightlife entertainment. It’s easy to see why guests decide to stay here, but, which rooms are the best?
The BoardWalk Inn is a six-story deluxe resort and is themed around the fun and whimsy of a Victorian boardwalk carnival. It boasts bright exterior colors of red and yellow, alternating with softer blue and green. And, in keeping with its carnival theme, the BoardWalk also has some fun neon signage that lights up Crescent Lake at night. The resort faces Crescent Lake and is just across the lake from Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts. You’ve picked a beautiful resort to spend your Disney vacation, but let’s look at the best rooms!
As colorful as the BoardWalk is on the outside and throughout the common areas and the lobby, the rooms are quite understated. Crisp white linens, dark wood furniture, with a Victorian-styled striped wallpaper that adds vertical strips of sunshine throughout the room.
There are 378 guest rooms at the BoardWalk. The rooms are typically 371 square feet and feature two queen-size beds, a daybed, and a desk with chairs. There are some different categories to choose from: Standard View, Garden View, and Water View. The east wing of the resort is dedicated to standard resort rooms, while the west wing of the resort is dedicated to the Disney Vacation Club Villas.
For an extra cost, there are also 60 club level or concierge rooms on the fifth floor Innskeeper Club. Those these rooms are basically the same as standard rooms, they do offer access to additional amenities, including:
- An exclusive check-in area
- A concierge cast members to assist with personal vacation needs
- Nightly turndown service
- Access to a club lounge stocked with complimentary food and beverages
Situated on the ground floor, these suites provide little garden cottages on the internal side of the BoardWalk, the side that doesn’t face the boardwalk entertainment district. For one of the suites, request rooms 1201-1215.
If you want a chance to peak at some EPCOT, the tiptops of the France Pavilion, the majestic iconic geodesic sphere, and even some fireworks at night, you’ll want to stay on the highest floor you can (fourth or fifth floor) and request rooms -290, -292, -296, -298, -300, -302, -304, -306, -308. and -266, -268, -270, -272, -274, -276, -278, -282.
Views of Crescent Lake
If you’re looking for a room overlooking the lively boardwalk and gazing out over Crescent Lake with Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club across the lake, then the third floor will give you the best option with rooms in odd numbers from -213 through -259.
If you’re looking for quieter rooms that could come in super handy for napping kiddos, or if you’re hoping to sleep in. Then you’ll want to seek out rooms ending in even numbers -202 through -212.
